19 © 2014 APC/API/CAP. All rights reserved. Essentials 1 Map: Top Area Topic Title Informatics in Pathology Practice Information Systems Fundamentals Importance of Databases Introduction to Data Standards Data Availability & Security Rationale The practice of pathology relies on the creation, management, and accurate and timely communication of clinical laboratory information. Computers are essential tools that pathologists use in the management of information for laboratory practice and patient care. Databases provide core structure and tools that enable pathologists to manage and analyze large amounts of information. Standards enable sharing of data among different health care information systems (ie, interoperability), which is necessary for patient care. Pathologists are ultimately responsible for the access to and safety of pathology information. Outcomes for Achievement Understand the relevance of informatics in pathology practice. Describe the difference between information technology (IT) and informatics and recognize how pathologists contribute to informatics initiatives. Explain the salient differences and similarities among pathology informatics, bioinformatics, public health informatics, health care information technology and health knowledge informatics. Use correct terminology to describe the major types and components of computer hardware, software, and computer networks. Conversant in the fundamentals of databases, including data types, fields, records, database structure, and mechanisms for querying data; understands how data storage affects data retrieval options. Define the types and roles of standards used in pathology, at a basic level. Understand the elements of data availability as a key part of security.
